Kathy’s presentation “Rebuilding Your Life After a Fire Loss” included her personal experiences after a fire devastated her newly renovated house. She shared detailed information and helpful tips about insurance issues, the construction process and the support she received from many people that helped through an emotional time. Kathy is not only very knowledgeable, but an engaging and passionate speaker. Her program is extremely organized and included an excellent chronological slide show. The audience loved her. Kathy is kind, generous and a delight to work with. I highly recommend her program.

The Garden Club of Avon thoroughly enjoyed Kathy’s presentation, The Evolution of a Garden. Moreen Zachariasen, then President of the club, considered it the highlight of her term. The images and information provided ideas we could all interpret for our own gardens, and the wonderful handouts on books to read and gardens to visit continue to inspire us.

The Wilton Garden Club very much enjoyed Kathy’s recent program on Designing for Multi-season Interest. She shares her experiences and knowledge from her own gardens in an interesting Power Point presentation, using inspirational photos. The club members have already set a date for a return visit.

Kathy gave a presentation on Great Local Destinations for the Minor Memorial Library, and I am happy to recommend her as a speaker. She is very organized, offers well researched and interesting content, and has great photos. Kathy presents in an engaging way that makes us all want to come along on the trip!

A Garden for All takes me on my own adventure each time I read it.  Each post teaches me about some aspect of gardening or nature that I didn’t know, tells a compelling story about unique and interesting characters and/or gives me a tiny glimpse into Kathy Diemer’s personal life. I love reading A Garden for All not only for its vast content and visual appeal due to her stunning photographs, but also for its entertainment value as Kathy has a delightful and sometimes edgy sense of humor.

The title is perfect as there is something for everyone in Kathy’s stories. I don’t quite know how she does it – I live in the Rocky Mountains where gardening is virtually impossible at this altitude, yet Kathy’s blog posts make me feel as though I tend to a lush garden of my own.  I find myself living vicariously through her Southern New England life filled with the wonder of nature and more importantly, the wonder of people and their unique stories.

As I marvel at the photography of luscious plants, flowers, animals and gorgeous places, I find myself happily engaged in Kathy’s contagious sense of curiosity and adventure. Wherever Kathy is going next, I’ll be right there, eagerly reading along. Please keep ‘em coming!

Not only is A Garden For All infinitely readable, written with an honest but flowing and entertaining voice, and exquisitely photographed, but best of all, this isn’t some privileged British lady pontificating on how to marshal the staff of gardeners who grow their tender little nuggets in a nearly tropical zone. This is one of our neighbors, gardening next door and engaged in two-fisted weeding, digging, hauling, and all that scratch and dent stuff right down the street. Her issues are our issues. Her solutions could be your answers. Her local sources of plants are where you should shop. And her garden is an open book. If you’re not paying attention to this invaluable resource—you’re losing out.
